Cong eyes comeback as BJP readies for Modi hat-trick
It was a tough task for Doshi to answer questions like if Modi would move to Delhi after results are declared and who would prove a better prime minister, Modi or Rahul Gandhi.
Dismissing exit poll results, Doshi said it was a sort of entertainment for the party workers who were tired of canvassing for the last several weeks. He claimed his party would win and form the government.
Modhwadia was reported to be functioning from his residence, collecting reports from district and taluka party presidents about the candidates likely to win and submitting the report to the party high command. He left for Porbandar, from where he contested the polls, today.
While Gohil was reported to have left for his constituency in Bhavnagar, Vaghela was reported to have attended two weddings in Mehsana and Ahmedabad, and a social function in Gandhinagar.
At Ratnamani Complex opposite the Gandhigram Railway Station where GPP office is located, party leaders had smiles on their faces expecting to spoil the game for Modi.
While party chief Keshubhai Patel did not visit the office after the last phase of the polls, its general secretary Gordhan Zadaphia was camping in Rajkot to meet party workers from Saurashtra.
Interacting with journalists for the last two days, GPP's office secretary Suresh Patel has been explaining how his party will play spoilsport for Modi in particular and stop his juggernaut from moving to Delhi.
Terming the exit poll results highly exaggerated, Patel said how MahaGujarat Janata Party (MJP) led by Zadaphia in the 2009 Lok Sabha polls worked to defeat BJP candidates from Banaskantha, Patan, Kheda and Surendranagar.
"With Keshubhai, considered as the tallest Patel leader, now heading GPP (new avatar of MJP), the party is sure to cause much more damage to the BJP by splitting the saffron votes," Patel said while admitting that his own party may hardly win around 15 seats.
